    ‘Honestly, years later I still can’t understand how we managed to lose that game,’ Kaka told Radio Cope in March 2016. ‘We had the best defenders in the world in that team. Our back four was Cafu, Jaap Stam, Alessandro Nesta and Paolo Maldini but we still let in three goals in six minutes. Something amazing happened that can’t be explained.'
